This is not upstream source. That means the patches you speak of will
probably fail (especially the mm patches). If you want to run from the
mm tree, you should get your sources at kernel.org

Yes, just patch 2.6.8 with this patch.

By applying the mm4 patch.

The mm4 patch is against 2.6.8-1. You should not apply mm2, mm3, etc...

If mm5 gets released then you reverse the mm4 and apply mm5. The mm
patch is always against the base kernel version, it is not incremental.
